Meet Alexis and Raeann.
Here at Madcap Coffee, we place a high value on relationships and connection across our business, whether that is in our cafés, visiting producers, or through customer service interactions online. It is a value that permeates what we do.
In particular, our Wholesale Team, lead by Alexis Christie and Raeann Lupo, takes the initiative when it comes to building and fostering relationships with our wholesale customers and friends who run stellar cafés across North America. Alexis is our Account Manager, and she is responsible for facilitating ordering, questions, and support for current accounts. Raeann is our Business Development Manager, specializing in finding new wholesale partners and building relationships. If you’ve ever ordered wholesale coffee form Madcap, there is a good chance you’ve interacted with them!
Both Alexis and Raeann have long-standing experience in the food and beverage industry. Previously, Alexis worked in Wine and Anthropology, which transferred well into the specialty coffee industry. In particular, she was drawn to the cultural impact and complexities of the coffee chain, which has been a continued passion of hers. Raeann brought both corporate sales experience and knowledge from the world of micro-breweries to the team at Madcap, which has been extremely insightful for her work developing new business at Madcap. Together, they are a dynamic team.
Outside of work, Alexis and Raeann love being in nature. During the warmer months in Michigan, Raeann is guaranteed to be at the beach soaking up the summer rays or off on an adventure with her wife, Cirina. Alexis is often hiking, fly fishing, or backpacking, depending on the season, introducing her son Townes to her favorite hobbies.
We are stoked on all that Alexis and Raeann bring to the team at Madcap, and are filled with anticipation as we look forward to what is ahead. We’ve been extremely fortunate with the number of great partners we’ve had over the years so far, and we would not be where we are if it weren’t for them. If you have any questions regarding our wholesale program, reach out to us below, and Raeann will be in touch with you soon.
